Thinking about making a move to New Jersey? You’ll want to be sure you’re ready whether you plan on renting one of the Hoboken NJ apartments or buying a home in Cherry Hill. It may not be a big state, but there’s a lot to consider any time you make a significant change.
Knowing what makes it unique can help you decide whether New Jersey is truly the place you want to be.
You Want Small Town Charms with Easy Access to the Big Cities
If you want the best of both worlds, meaning a quiet environment in which to live while still enjoying being within easy reach of big cities, New Jersey is a great pick. You’ll be close to New York City and a relatively short drive from Philadelphia, while Boston and Washington, DC are within a four-hour drive. It’s a great place to raise the kids while providing them with access to rich historical and cultural experiences close by. Can you imagine being able to take them to the MET on a day trip?
No matter where you live in this state you’ll be close to a major highway like I-287 or I-95, making it convenient to get to many destinations, including the office. With plenty of train and bus routes, you can use your commute to catch up on reading instead of having to be behind the wheel.
You Want to Enjoy All Four Seasons and Don’t Mind Extremes
Do you enjoy that crisp fall air and the changing of the leaves, winter wonderland scenes, spring flowers, and warm weather for beach time and other outdoor activities? You’ll get it all here, with four distinct seasons. Admittedly, you’ll need to be ready for some extremes too – summer can get hot and muggy, hurricanes are a possibility, and wintertime can bring blizzards.
Be aware that winter storms can impact an area for days, weeks, and sometimes even longer, which can mean blocked roadways, power outages, and other frustrations. But with the right clothing and other preparations, including a generator in case the power goes out, you’ll be prepared.
You Love the Beach
The Jersey Shore is home to some of the country’s best beaches like Cape May, Point Pleasant, and Ocean City, ideal for sunbathing, swimming, surfing, and more. Plus many stretches host summer concerts like Asbury Park’s Jams on the Sand. There’s no need for families to worry – the real Jersey Shore is nothing like it’s depicted on those reality shows. It’s safe and family-friendly.
You Love the Mountains
You don’t have to choose between the mountains and the beach here. This state may be heavily populated but it offers a surprising number of wide open spaces, and in the central and northern areas of the state, there are forest-covered mountains, including the Ramapo, Watchung, and Kittatinny ranges. They offer more recreational opportunities too like hiking, mountain biking, skiing, fishing, camping, and more.
You Want to Cheer on a Winning Team
If you like sports and enjoy going to games, you’ll love New Jersey. In fact, both the New York Giants and the Jets play at MetLife Stadium which is located in New Jersey, not New York. Then you’ve got the Red Bulls soccer team and the Devils hockey team too.
At least eleven people are dead after a building collapse in Surfside, FL. Rescue operations continue.
A condominium partially collapsed in South Florida on June 24, at 1:20 AM. At least half of the 135 units in the 13-story building have collapsed, according to the Miami-Dade mayor Danielle Levine Cava. The Champlain Towers South building was originally shaped like an “L,” but the lower half of that shape was completely sheared off, including the building’s pool and garage.
The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue is leading the rescue efforts along with multiple other agencies. The White House and FEMA are also monitoring the situation and will provide assistance to the local officials if needed.
A woman who resides on the ninth floor recalled her experience to Local 10, “The whole building shook like an earthquake. I opened my sliding glass and I saw a plume of dust and then I opened the door and I saw that the building had pancaked in the back.”
Another resident commented that he and his wife fled to the garage, only to find that the pipes had burst and it was flooded.
Rescue teams are recovering victims from the rubble, while all tenants in unaffected apartments are being evacuated. Firefighters continue to sift through the wreckage for victims, which includes using dogs and microphones.
“Debris is falling on them as they do their work. We have structural engineers on site to ensure that they will not be injured, but they are proceeding because they are so motivated and they are taking extraordinary risk on the site every day,” says Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, describing the “extreme risk” of the firefighters dangerous duty.
Over 400 workers are involved in the rescue effort, with up to 200 rescuers searching through debris at all times, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Chief Alan Cominsky.
Surfside Mayor Charles W. Burkett cannot think of a reason for this collapse to have happened, other than an unexpected sinkhole or human interference. While he confirmed that roof work was being done on this building, this is a regular occurrence that he doesn’t believe could have caused the collapse. However, former Surfside Vice Mayor Barry Cohen, a resident of the collapsed building, believes that the roof work actually may have compromised the integrity of the building.
Unfortunately, a thunderstorm has paused all rescue efforts for the time being, according to Commissioner Sally Heyman.
The Champlain Towers South condominium community have continued to mourn the victims of the tragedy in the days following the harrowing accident.
A third lawsuit has now been filed against the Champlain Towers South Condominium Association on behalf of ninth floor resident, Raysa Rodriguez. Rodriguez is seeking unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial. The compliant alleges: ““Despite the obvious duties required by Florida law, and this admitted duty of care by the Association’s Declaration and other governing documents, Defendant, through their own reckless and negligent conduct, caused a catastrophic deadly collapse of Champlain Towers South in Surfside.”
Rodriguez additionally alleged that in 2018, “major structural damages” were outlined in a structural field survey report submitted to the defendant by Morabito Consultants. The compliant is seeking a class action status lawsuit to represent all of the condominium’s victims of the tragic accident.
Rodriguez’ attorney, Adam Schwartzbaum, argued that the building has been aware of these “critical” structural issues for some time, and that warning signs of collapse have been apparent for the last decade. Schwartzbaum says, “Certainly for at least three years, there was a major red flag…sirens flashing, alerting the condo association of this of this danger.” He elaborated in another comment that, “based on our investigation there were many warnings signs more than 10 years ago, maybe even longer. These are not things that were just a few years ago.”
A letter sent from the building’s condo association president reveals that damage to the basement garage of the building had become “significantly worse” since its prior inspection, three years ago. The letter also reveals that the estimated repair costs had risen from $9 million to $15 million, reveals USA Today.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki has said that President Joe Biden thinks an investigation into the Champlain Towers South collapse should be set in motion.
The harrowing search-and-rescue operation is still currently underway, stretching into day six of the rescue effort.
A family reunification center has been set up for anyone looking for unaccounted or missing relatives at a community center at 9301 Collins Ave. Those searching for their loved ones or to report that they have been located are asked to call 305-614-1819. An emergency information hotline has also been created at 305-993-1071.

A simple, economic lifestyle doesn’t necessarily require sacrificing your quality of life, in spite of people often mistakenly believing that one is almost synonymous with the other. It is perfectly possible to combine minimalism with intelligent indulgence, and live well for less. In regard to how that can be achieved, we will now discuss some of the easy to adopt methods next.
Rent, Don’t Buy
When you rent instead of buying, you save more money, since you do not lose out on the depreciating cost of real estate in the US and there’s nothing holding you back from moving when you need to.
Don’t Pay High Rent Unnecessarily
Renting is a better and cheaper option than buying, which is a financial and practical truth, but you can save even more by moving to a low rent section of the city. If you like the location, just move to a smaller apartment and you will be paying less, without sacrificing the location.
Sometimes, we make the mistake of paying more money for space we hardly even use, which is common, but unwise nonetheless.
Don’t Give Up on the Coffee, but Save on the Pods
The coffee machine is a little bit of luxury that some people won’t likely be willing to give up. Even if they do give up on the coffee machine because of the exorbitant prices of the original coffee pods, it won’t be a sacrifice that will make you feel like you are living well for less!
As this list is all about finding cheaper and sometimes better ways to live well by spending less money, we have a brilliant solution for you. If you have a Nespresso machine, for example, just choose to buy Nespresso capsules from a third party instead, and you could be saving about 40% on the pods!
Gourmesso makes espresso, lungo, decaf, and flavored coffee pods for the Nespresso machines (except the VertuoLine models), which will save you a fortune in the long run, but you won’t have to sacrifice on the quality of your coffee at all.
Don’t Shop from Expensive Brands
Gucci, Prada and Ralph Lauren products are exorbitantly expensive, but do not provide any real additional value to the customer, aside from vanity.
You would be surprised to know that almost all of the products which these brands release with their stamp on them are actually made in tiny sweatshops that you will never even hear about. The same products, without the customizations exclusive to those brands are often sold by their suppliers at a tiny fraction of the price!
You don’t have to buy rags and unbranded clothing of course, but by simply avoiding the big brands, and supporting some of the local, less popular ones, you will be able to shop more for less money.
Shift to a More Practical Car
The muscle cars and the sports cars have their appeal, so to say they are pointless would be a lie. Unlike branded clothing from luxury brands, you do actually get better performance and the wow factor from these beasts for sure.
However, in a practical scenario, these cars are definitely more about vanity than practicality. It’s okay when you have that mindset and the money to spend on a car that will burn through fuel like hot knife through butter, but as we are talking about living well for less, why not shift to a more fuel-efficient and comfortable car instead?
They cost less to buy, maintain and refuel, immediately making them a better choice for living with less, but without really sacrificing on anything practical.
There’s just so much more you can change and adopt to save money, without having to let go of your favorite things in life. These were just five, but they should be able to give you an idea of how to do the same in any other sphere of your lifestyle as well.
